Here’s a roundup of ways to spend your summer on the water.



Kent Moye

Believe it or not, Oklahoma boasts more miles of shoreline than the Gulf and Atlantic coasts combined. The state is home to more than 200 lakes and offers over 1 million surface acres perfect for boating, swimming, fishing and water recreation of all kinds. In town, Tulsa has pools and water features galore. Here’s a roundup of ways to spend your summer on the water.

Balancing act 

Stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) is the newest fitness craze to hit Tulsa. Although it’s a sport that can be associated with tropical ocean destinations, all you really need are a paddleboard and a body of water. Fortunately, we have an abundance of both in Oklahoma. 

SUP has a short learning curve, but requires balance and core and upper-body strength. It can be a fun pastime with family and friends or a way to incorporate fun and fitness into a healthy lifestyle.

Kent Moye owns SUP Oklahoma, located at Red Bud Marina on Lake Oologah, approximately 50 miles from Tulsa. It sells equipment, handles repairs and offers classes, including SUP yoga. 

“You can go for a leisurely paddle and enjoy being outdoors on the water by yourself, or take a cruise with friends and enjoy a sunset paddle,” Moye says. “Others might want to do some sprints, distance paddling or other training.”

Moye has seen a steady growth in popularity since he purchased the business in 2015. For Moye, at age 60, SUP has become a new way of life. He sees older adults enjoy the sport as it’s easier on the physique than other exercises, while the younger crowd also loves it for the sporting aspect.

“The Tulsa area has been great,” Moye says. “We see a lot of people curious and wanting to try it.”

When temperatures spike, relief can be found at one of Tulsa’s 31 splash pads or water playgrounds. All are open to the public and free of charge. Splash pads and water playgrounds are similar; however, splash pads lack the playground element and often lack restrooms or parking facilities. Hours of operation for all 31 locations are noon-8 p.m., daily beginning in May.

According to the City of Tulsa website, water playgrounds are available for rental. They can be opened up to three hours early for special occasions for a $25 fee per hour on weekdays or a $45 fee per hour on weekends.

Each splash pad and water playground has its own set of rules, so be sure to check what’s posted for proper attire, age requirements and other regulations.

Swimming holes are popular ways to beat the Oklahoma heat.

Illinois River

Visitors flock to the Illinois River in the summer. The options are endless, but the most popular activity is a float trip. There are several outfitters and options, including canoes, kayaks or inflatable rafts for larger groups. Trips of various lengths and degrees of difficulty are available, ranging from 6- to 70-mile stretches. 

Offering a wide variety of accommodations, from campgrounds to resorts and attractions, including disc golf courses and waterslides, the Illinois River is a perfect weekend destination for the whole family.

 

Blue Hole Park

Located 7 miles east of Salina, the Blue Hole swimming area has been cooling visitors off for generations. The main swimming hole is fed by three springs. There is an admission fee and concession stand.

 

The Pawnee Bathhouse

Located about 60 miles west of Tulsa, the Pawnee Bathhouse is on the National Historic Register and was selected as Discover Oklahoma’s Favorite Summer Destination for 2003.

 

Spring Creek

Spring Creek is a natural, spring-fed, crystal-clear creek. The main area is located about 70 miles east of Tulsa off Highway 82. Although it’s mostly bound by private lands, there are several public and paid access points that are deep enough to swim.
